The nature of application development has swung away from large, tightly integrated (some might say “coupled”) behemoths into loose collections of highly-granular functionality. This is true both within an application, through tools like Ruby’s metaprogramming facilities and flexible typing, and among a suite of applications, enabled by single-sign-on security architectures and widely available robust messaging providers. This talk will demonstrate these techniques and look at the benefits of this application style, from maintainability, testability, to scalability and sanity.
